INSPIRING EXHIBITOR ::

This month we are inspired by Event Espresso Catering who has recently started a morning Cafe at Midtown Place in Raleigh. Owner and lead barista, Casey Marburger, has been serving weddings and events with her portable "coffee house" in the Triangle for the past year and a half and will now be offering a more permanent solution to your caffeine craving! The cafe is now open Monday-Friday from 7:30AM to 9:30AM on the first floor of Midtown Place located at 3708 Benson Drive. Please visit www.eventespressocatering.com for menu and details, and stop by the next time you are in the area!
